Having made the decision to go full-time as a landscape photographer my first week has been a long time coming. Oh but what a week it was!
The story behind my decision to leave my job in IT and try to follow my dream of becoming a professional landscape photographer.
Exploring the area around Wet Sleddale on the eastern edge of the Lake District National Park with my 23 year old point and shoot film camera.
After a break in 2018 I made a number of promises to myself about how things would be different in the future. As I return from my summer break a year later I look back to see if I kept those promises.
Modern camera lenses are wonderful bits of kit but how often do we push them to the limits? By setting out to shoot at our lens’s extreme settings we can force ourselves to be more creative and learn through experimentation.
The western Lake District is the wildest and most remote of the 5 regions. Home to both England’s highest mountain and it’s deepest lake it offers almost limitless scope for landscape photography. Here are 6 locations to get you started.
I recently set a friend of mine, Cat, the challenge of shooting a triptych; a set of three images on a shared theme that are intended to be viewed together. It was great fun. Now is your turn to have a go.
Many of us shoot predominantly with a wide angle lens. However, with wide angle lenses our choices are rather limited. On a recent visit to Loughrigg Fell in the central Lake District I used my telephoto to increase my options. Now it’s your turn to have a go.
